[texts]Saturn Ring Observer Concept Study - Phil Nicholson, Matthew Tiscareno and Linda Spilker
The Saturn Ring Observer (SRO) study was requested by the Giant Planets Panel of the 2012 Planetary Science Decadal Survey (PSDS). The panel specified two study objectives: -Investigate the method(s) by which a spacecraft might be placed in a tight circular orbit around Saturn, using chemical or nuclear-electric propulsion or aerocapture in Saturn's atmosphere. The critical issue is trajectory. -Identify technological developments for the next decade that would enable such a mission in the post-...

[texts]Saturn Atmospheric Entry Probe Trade Study - Reta Beebe
This study found it might be possible to implement a Saturn probe mission in which a flyby carrier-relay spacecraft (CRSC) would deliver a single probe within the resource constraints of NASA's New Frontiers Program. Achievement of this goal would require a small and focused set of science objectives. The mission's science objectives, specified by the study science team, are divided into two groups: "Tier 1," essentially the science floor objectives that must be addressed to make the mission wor...

[texts]Titan Saturn System Mission - John Spencer
Titan is a high priority for exploration, as recommended by NASA's 2006 Solar System Exploration (SSE) Roadmap (NASA 2006), NASA's 2003 National Research Council (NRC) Decadal Survey (NRC Space Studies Board 2003) and ESA's Cosmic Vision Program Themes. Recent revolutionary Cassini-Huygens discoveries have dramatically escalated interest in Titan as the next scientific target in the outer solar system...

[texts]Saturn Atmospheric Entry Probe Mission Concept Study - Dr. Reta Beebe
The science objectives of the Saturn Atmospheric Probe Mission Study are divided into two groups:"Tier 1," the science floor objectives that would need to be addressed to make the mission worthwhile, and "Tier 2," the next highest priority level, with objectives that prospective Principal Investigators could reasonably add, given sufficient resources. By request from the science team, this study addressed only the Tier 1 objectives: -Determine the noble gas abundances and isotopic ratios of hydr...
